ESC 470: Student Teaching in the Middle and High School Grades.
One semester of full-time supervised student teaching, minimum two experiences of 20 days each (or other approved experiences); 6 credits. Student teaching in the middle and high school grades, plus a weekly seminar. PREREQ: Completion of appropriate Content Area Teaching Methods course(s), with a B or better; maintenance of overall GPA of at least 2.7; submission of scores on the LAST and ATS-W Teacher Certification Examination to the Division Office; Departmental permission; and approval from the Professional Development Network Coordinator.
NOTES: (1) Student teaching on both the middle and high school level is required for State certification in English, social studies, foreign languages, science, and mathematics. Students seeking certification in music, health, art, and speech language pathology must complete a K-12 student teaching experience and should see the undergraduate advisor in the Department of Middle and High School Education for advisement. New York State may add this requirement for other subjects, so students are advised to consult their advisers in this Department regularly. (2) Student teaching requires formal application and approval the semester before the course is to be taken. It is the student's responsibility to check with the Professional Development Network Coordinator for meeting and application dates early in the prior semester.
